Reporting a dog bite is important so Clermont County Public Health can locate the dog and implement quarantine. A healthy dog that bites or otherwise exposes a person should be quarantined for 10 days from the date of the exposure. The quarantine period is based on the length of time that the rabies virus may be excreted in the saliva prior to the onset of rabies symptoms.

If the dog shows no clinical signs of rabies during the quarantine period, it should be examined by a licensed veterinarian and declared free from rabies. If the animal does not have a current rabies vaccination, the vaccine should be given at that time. Rabies vaccine should not be administered to the animal during quarantine. If any signs of illness occur during quarantine, it should be reported to Clermont County Public Health and the animal evaluated by a veterinarian immediately.
